Legislation by incorporation and reference

When a statute "A" is made on the line of another statute "B" and provisions of "B"  are incorporated in "A", any change in the "B" statute will not affect "A" - it is called legislation by incorporation . But when provisions of  statue "B" are not incorporated but only referred in statute "A", any change in "B" shall automatically apply to "A" - it is called legislation by reference.
 The question is when a State is reorganized and a new State is carved out, whether any change by the original legislature in statute "B" will be applicable to  statute "A" in the new State ?
